I was really more interested in them hitting 3DS.

 

And what's with the whole "Console games will be on Wii U, handheld games on 3DS" and then just like... just sort of... DS and GBA games on Wii U

I really didn't care if they came on a console or handheld. I'm just excited they are finally releasing Gameboy Advance games on something. I have a few on my 3DS from the ambassador program. Can't wait to see what games they release on the Wii U.

Same here.

 

It's great that they're coming out, but how are people going to get more of them on there? There's only so much space. You'd figure that it would be more practical on the 3ds, since you can get more SD cards for it.

 

*shrugs*

 

But I am grateful they're coming out at all.

 

Any games you guys hope come out for it?

Yoshi's Island from the GBA which was basically a port from the SNES version.

 

So that means we're getting a port of a port??

 

Anyways I can't wait to play through the game again~ <3

GBA is now considered a legacy system... I'm not sure how I feel about this.

If you feel old, than we are feeling the same way.

You can also put SD cards in the Wii U, and even external hard drives. Unless I'm reading your post wrong?

I wish I had internet so I could hook my Wii U up to the internet and get these things! I'd rather see them on 3DS, personally.

Well, this is just silly, and that is all I have to say about that.

Well at least they are getting ready to release them on something. I would get Superstar Saga and Minish Cap either way, same with Mario Kart Super Circuit as well. Wario Land 4 would be the 4th GBA VC game i'd get either way too. But I have all of the mentioned except for Superstar Saga because like most 3DS owners I am a 3DS Ambassador and have Minish Cap, Mario Kart Super Circuit, and Wario Land 4 on my 3DS already.

GBA version is arguably inferior, too - it's not the worst GBA port and it's pretty solid, but considering that they have the option to release the SNES version I don't know why they're not just doing that (unless they're having difficulty getting it working - it was one of the more advanced SNES games).

I don't know which I want, the GBA ports of DKC or the SNES versions of DKC...

Ah. Didn't know that. That's good. It would work in regards to the space issue. Nope you read it correctly. Glad it won't affect that. It would be nice if they came out on the 3ds too.

 

Just read somewhere that Goldensun will be coming out for the Wii U. It's for Japan, but I hope it'll come out every where else soon enough. I'll be snapping that one right up from day one.
